Arabimarklet: Tools to Jump across Arabidopsis Databases

Arabimarklets are easy-to-use JavaScript Bookmarklets for plant researchers.
When you are at ANY website that contains At0g00000-type gene codes, Arabimarklets can immediately bring you to the corresponding entries at your favorite databases.

How to Use: (Japanese introduction by Dr. Obayashi is available at Nazuna ML Log)

1. Right-click a To ... link to your favorite website and select "Add to Favorites" (Internet Explorer) or "Bookmark this link" (Firefox) to bookmark it. If you use Safari or Chrome, please drag-and-drop the link to the bookmark bar.

2. Visit ANY website that contains Arabidopsis gene IDs.

3. Open that bookmark! (You may need to allow pop-up windows.)

If you wish to test how these Arabimarklets work...

Just please left-click the To ... links.
They will automatically find gene ID(s) in the page content (see 4 lines above!) and immediately bring you to the corresponding entry in the selected database.
Arabimarklets do the same wherever you are.

Please email (Wataru IWASAKI) or tweet to me in English or Japanese if you need bookmarklets to other databases or found any problems regarding these tools.
They do not do anything other than opening new browser windows, and have no security risks.
Arabimarklets do not work on Internet Explorer 6.
